Overdue virgins: what do your parents think of your condition? watch

    I was inspired by the "How did your parents find out about you losing your virginity" thread here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1579261

    Basically what I'm wondering is what do the parents of people who are overdue virgins (lets define that as people who have had much less/no experience at an age when most people have done it or at least something) think of them and do they even know about your "condition"?

    I'm personally 22 and the ultimate virgin: never kissed a girl, never had a gf and still a virgin obviously.

    I am not sure if my parents are 100% sure of the extent of my virginity but they've got some clues: when I'm home (though I study in the UK, I'm not from here) I never go out, almost never meet up with friends or anything like that so I'm home constantly so they are well aware of my complete and utter lack of a social life and hence no contact with females. I have always been like this and I never hid anything from my parents: if they asked me something I'd answer it directly.

    While at uni we still talk and though its hard for them to know what exactly I do, I think they are vaguely aware of the fact that I don't really go out much.
    Sometimes they jokingly ask if I have a girl or not and I answer no and thats about the extent of their inquisitions into my romantic life.
    Occasionally my dad has joked about my lack of experience with girls (I don't know if he knows the full picture but he's got an idea) but thats about it, mom never brings the topic up.

    What about the rest of you virgins out there?

    Not a virgin but back when I was my dad used to use it as a way to trying to get me to change something.

    Eg. if he thought I was overdue for a haircut and looked stupid he'd go

    "Come on how are you gonna impress a girl looking like that" etc.

    Can't use that one at the moment hah

    For the lulz.Neither he nor his Dad hasn't mentioned it to me since.Deserves it though for refusing to do anything other than go to the cinema or talk about bloody Pokemon.

    'Overdue' virgins? Theres no such thing - people should lose their virginity because they feel ready to lose their virginity, not because they've passed some sort of expiry date.. :s anyway to answer the question my parents don't care that I'm a virgin - I don't understand why being a virgin at twenty-something is a bad thing?

    I am also an ultimate virgin, at the age of 21, we don't believe in sex outside marriage so virginity's not a 'condition' to be ashamed of - I'm sure the men in my family suspect that I'm up to something though, they're massively suspicious of any socializing I do in case there might be boys there!

    I know a girl whose mum constantly ribs her for being a virgin - like, why?! Why would you not want your daughter to be a virgin?!

    Since I come from a religious family, they're happy with it. But the topic of girls comes very very rarely between me and my parents and even if we do talk about it, it's just jokingly eg:my mum sees I'm not dressed nicely or something and jokes about what girls will think of me.

    And loool at 'condition'!
